Electronic Circuit Printing, 3D Printing and Film Formation Utilizing Electrostatic Inkjet Technology
Abstract:An investigation has been carried out on the control of a micro-droplet in electrostatic inkjet phenomena, because the electrostatic inkjet has a merit that the formation and locus of the droplet can be controlled by the application of the electric field and it is possible to treat highly viscous liquid. It was observed that a Taylor cone of the paste was formed at an end of a tube and the tip of the cone was broken to form a very small droplet at the beginning of the corona discharge. Droplets of paste that contains Ag nano-particles are injected on a glass substrate to form electrode patterns. The formation of the droplet is controlled by the application of pulse voltage between the plate electrode and the fine tube that is filled with Ag paste. A multi-layered printing was realized by over-coating insulative glass paste on line electrodes. A direct 3D printing was also developed by taking advantage that highly viscous liquid can be ejected by the electrostatic inkjet system.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
